Windows 7: Cannot burn/read CDs/DVDs over RDP

15 Apr 2012   #1

Cannot burn/read CDs/DVDs over RDP

Whenever I put the disk in my drive and try to open the disk over RDP, I get an error message stating that "Windows cannot read the disk in drive D:\..."

However, when I log in locally, I can read/write to disks normally.

I've tried other remote programs (VNC) and I have no issues.
I can boot from disks as well.

I have noticed that if I switch between RDP and local when viewing the "My Computer" window, I will see two DVD disk drives.

Could RDP be cloning my drive somehow?
